ALBANY, N. Darren Collison Jersey .Y. -- Any chance the St. Johns IceCaps had of stealing a second American Hockey League road playoff victory was ruined by penalties. The Albany Devils were awarded nine power-play opportunities Saturday night and cashed in three of them to defeat the IceCaps 4-2. After the IceCaps 2-1 victory Friday night, the best-of-five series is tied at one game apiece as the teams move to St. Johns, N.L., for the remaining games. "We have to stay more disciplined," said defenceman Brenden Kichton, who scored both St. Johns goals. "Youre not going to win hockey games when youre in the box, but we to have credit them. They did a good job on their power play. They got three goals out of it, and thats not how we play to win." The IceCaps, who allowed the Devils only two power-play chances in Game 1, still got out of Albany with a split. "Its a five-game series here, as everybody says, and we were able to get the one game in here," St. Johns coach Keith McCambridge said. "We would have really liked to get this game. Well have a chance to refocus here and get ourselves back in the right direction for Wednesday." The Devils, buoyed by the largest home crowd at 8,026 in Albanys 21-year AHL history, made their potential path to the next round a little more negotiable. A loss would have forced Albany to sweep three games at St. Johns in order to advance. "Going into that building and having to win all three would definitely be pretty tough," Devils coach Rick Kowalsky said. "We said before, you cant sit here and talk about a must win. We talked about individually and as a team trying to be better than we were last night and realizing that I felt we grew as a team just in that short 60 minutes." Stefan Matteau, Mattias Tedenby and Scott Timmins had Albanys power-play goals. Kelly Zajac assisted on two of them, winning face-offs both times on the St. Johns half of the ice. Tedenby snapped a 2-2 tie at 8:08 of the second. Zajac won a draw just outside the IceCaps blue-line and skated in a 2-on-1 with Tedenby, who took the pass and beat St. Johns goaltender Michael Hutchinson from in close. Timmins got an insurance goal with 9:59 remaining in the third. "We would have liked not to be on the short end of the penalties for a good majority of the night," McCambridge said. "Weve got to make sure we are in control. Weve got to make sure we realize where we are in the game and try to keep it 5-on-5." St. Johns had only four power-play opportunities. Kichton first goal bounced in off the skate of Devils defenceman Jon Merrill. He also converted on a power play early in the second period, capitalizing when Albany defenceman Seth Helgeson fell at the blue-line. Keith Kinkaid, who gave up a soft goal with 23.1 seconds remaining Friday night, got his first professional victory in goal. Both he and Hutchinson made 30 saves. "There were a lot of opportunities tonight," Kichton said, "and we didnt cash in on those."

Fast-forward through injuries and Thursdays contest at AT&T Center is between the seventh and 10th best teams in the ultra-loaded Western Conference. The defending champion Spurs were without All-Star guard Tony Parker for five games earlier this month. Now, Kawhi Leonard is sidelined indefinitely with a torn ligament in his right hand.

Westbrook went for 40 points with 10 rebounds and six assists in the loss. But unlike Portlands Damian Lillard, who scored 40 on 21 shots, it took Westbrook a career-high 34 shot attempts to do it.

Westbrook was off the mark from way beyond the arc as the buzzer sounded. They pushed Russell out, Thunder coach Scott Brooks said of Westbrooks final shot in regulation. He made a tough decision. We have to get a better shot than that. LaMarcus Aldridge converted a three-point play following a Jackson basket to open the overtime period. Wesley Matthews knocked down a 3-pointer the next trip down prior to Westbrooks layup that made it a two-point game. It stayed that way until Lillard dialed in a trey, then he hit a pair of free throws with just over a minute left before Dorell Wrights tip-in gave the Blazers a comfortable seven-point cushion. The Spurs, meanwhile, halted a four-game losing streak Monday with a 125-118 home win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Parker scored 26 points and Tim Duncan posted his third straight double-double to help the Spurs. Duncan went for 21 points and 12 rebounds, Boris Diaw added a season-high 23 points off the bench and Manu Ginobili scored 19 with 10 assists for San Antonio. The Spurs assisted on 37 of their 49 baskets and shot a season-high 63.6 percent from the field. Parker was critical in his return from injury. I was just trying to bring energy and be aggressive, said Parker. Just happy to be back out there. The Spurs toppled the Thunder in six games in the Western Conference Finals last season.
